I've been using Firefox since Netscape ended and i always enjoyed it. Unfortunately the Firefox 72 is utterly hideous. It is the worst and most unstable browser i ever tested -- it's extremely slow, it doesn't even work with hardware acceleration, it's not compatible with most sites i access and it crashes a lot. Anyway I already reinstalled the version 71, which continues to work flawless and I don't plan to ever use auto updates again. The problem is that every single day Firefox tries to update to the horrible 72 version, and every day I have reject it manually.

I'm looking for a way to permanently block future Firefox updates, without asking me for it again. Any ideas?

After sync Firefox with my account, saved extensions are recovered successfull, but icons don't show up in toolbar. The only way I have refreshed and forced to show up was allowing the extension to execute in private window, doing a "refresh" of the extension and showing the image of the icon.

During video playback or audio playback, the volume in my sound mixer will suddenly be lowered to below 80% inexplicably. This happens constantly. And I can in fact make it do it by putting a video back, for example. It appears to be whenever the sound element of firefox is stopped and started it will reset itself, today to around 71%, but other days or instances to 85%.

No other apps on my system are having this issue, so I'm not sure where to begin!

Thanks in advance for any ideas..

Any ideas what could be causing this quite bizarre issue?

Since yesterday, Firefox will not play sound on youtube videos and some other embedded videos (eg Newsflare). IE and Chrome will play the sound. Have checked the sound system and everything seems OK as music still plays and websites with sound still work. Someone suggested it could be a flash player problem, but have checked Adobe flash and it is the latest version. I really don't know what the problem is. As an aside, my Train Simulator (which is run through Steam) also has no sound and it did 2 days ago!, but my Flight Simulator (also on Steam) has sound! Just can't get my head round it!! Help!!

Here's something important. I'm working to save people's lives against COVID-19, and Firefox, not Chrome is causing ALLof my gmail accounts to quickly and automatically sign out. For almost a month, and with great diligence and frustration in trying to troubleshoot this a couple of different ways (according to Mozilla and others)), nothing has prevailed.

Could it be the great number of open windows and tabs that cause it, because that is my last (but not yet tested theory). Most of the times the sign out occurs when the email draft automatically saves itself, and the site disconnects. How I know this, is gmail says it's trying to reconnect. There's also a message saying my hangouts isn't signed in, but neither is it signed in with Chrome One more thing. Every day for the last 3 years, I use CC cleaner to remove cookies and cache, so it can't be that. You'll have to come up with something Mozilla hasn't yet thought of yet.

And lastly, Firefox Lockwise (when it was active), prevented me from finding my "SAVED LOGINS", gmail account. Not even the search engine could find it (both when Lockwise was active, and after I cancelled the account). This program prevented me from finding my own password, which was needed urgently. And now, I can't get rid of Lockwise, even after cancelling the account. Anf from what I see, I'm forced to sign up with the account again, just to ask this question. Nobody likes the bully, so please help me PERMANENTLY remove Lockwise from my system? Thank you for helping on both fronts.

Here's a great tip or suggestion.

I propose that a question being asked should find some relevance in the answers presented.

In my last two inquiries there has been zero relevance, even when scrolling down three pages. Not even a smidgen of relevance. this too has been the problem with finding my account's password since Firefox Lockwise took a hold of it. I dare you to prove me wrong.

Perhaps you should align yourself with the google or yahoo search companies.

When I go to support, and type in "how do I find the current version of firefox for windows", I get: "Found 2923 results for ‘how do I find the current version of firefox for windows’ for ‘Firefox’ " but none address the issue of how to determine the most current version number. I notice Firefox says that I cannot upgrade, I must download a new version, with no explanation. The download is a version-unidentified executable called "Firefox installer.exe" I would consider this suspicious behavior in most downloaded software. What is going on? This seems like basic information that should be immediately available. I had a popup that said I am using the most current (71.0) version (I am using v 71.0), which appears to be incorrect. Googling this question has no Mozilla hits other than "Release Notes" which might lead one to guess 77.01, althoughn Wikipedia thinks just "77".

I had to create an account just o ask a forum question?

Hey everybody. A few weeks ago, my audio stopped working on Google Meet out of the blue. I can still hear everyone, but they can't hear me. Meet works fine in a different browser so it's not my computer/mic. I've cleared my cookies/cache and disabled adblock, which is about where my know how ends. Any help would be much appreciated; I use Meet a lot for a side job and I haven't been able to search my way into a solution. I'm on Mac Catalina with FF 71.

Formerly, one could reorder tabs in a Firefox browser window by clicking and dragging. One could also click and hold a tab and move it to create a new window or take a tab from one window, click and drag it to another window. I am no longer able to do this on my Mac laptop, after updating to Firefox 71. I can't seem to find a special setting in Firefox 71. Is there one or a way to allow tab movement? Or do I need to revert to the previous version of Firefox?

A couple days ago, I tried a fresh reinstall.

I use firefox on multiple PCs at work and sign in to sync my bookmarks and passwords; it's been an excellent feature given I'm not guaranteed to be in the same room and on the same PC. Since the latest update, when I choose to disconnect, I no longer have the option to remove/delete synced data, specifically bookmarks and passwords. I can't find it anywhere is settings. Has this been removed?

There is a folder called 'Amozilla' containing a folder called 'AFirefox' under Users/_____/AppData/Roaming, in addition to the regular Mozilla folder. The Amozilla files are all from 2018 - no recent use. Are these legitimate? Safe to delete?

The regular Mozilla folder contains two Firefox profile folders: one with recent files, the other all from 2018. Safe to delete the defunct profile folder? (I am the only user of this computer.)

Thanks.

I think Firefox updated a day or so ago on my computer. Since then, when switching between tabs there are times when it takes several seconds to go to the tab I click on, and Firefox is locked up while I wait for the switch. Is this a known issue, and if so when might it be fixed?
